Not for Profit Insurance - CRISP has now become the Community Underwriting Agency

NSW Meals on Wheels has been involved in helping Not for Profits obtain effective insurance for more than 20 years.What started from a few Meals Services with difficulty obtaining insurance 25 years ago, has today grown to providing insurance to around 900 Not for Profits across Australia and more than $3 million in annual premiums.

We formed Community Underwriting in 2014 to take the CRISP Not for Profit insurance facility one step further – to become Australia’s only insurance provider for Not for Profits which is owned by its own clients. All CRISP Not for Profit insurance clients were insured by Calliden and managed by the Community Underwriting team in our initial arrangements, ensuring a seamless transition from the CRISP facility.

On 30th May 2015 we renegotiated our insurer security for Not for Profit insurance clients. All new business and renewals with effect from that date are covered by Community Underwriting as agent for Berkley Insurance Australia. The Berkley Group of companies is led by Berkley Corporation, located in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA. It is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol WRB. Member companies of the Berkley Group have offices across the USA and in the United Kingdom, South America, Continental Europe, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

By joining together with other Not for Profits across Australia, we are making a real difference to the way Not for Profit insurance is provided in our sector.
